green garlic and spinach soup

Green Garlic
Anyone here read Orangette? She posted a green garlic and spinach soup recipe on Monday that I just had to try since we have a bunch of green garlic in our garden now. Green garlic just being young garlic. So I pulled a handful of it, sliced it

and went ahead with the rest of the recipe until I got this:
Green Garlic and Spinach soup
I have to say, I loved this soup. It was rich even before I added the cream. And it tasted good and green, but not oh-this-must-be-good-for-me-yuck-green. It was well….just go and read what Molly has to say about it, she describes it much better. But you must try it!

If you are looking for another great recipe, try the carmalized carrot risotto recipe that Julie just made. I have to say that cooked carrots and cooked peas are the only two foods I really don’t like, but even I was tempted to try that delicious looking risotto.

    This…looks…. delicious!

    I’ll be planting some garlic this fall, but I don’t have any now. I guess I’ll have to wait for the CSA garlic to make this.

    And in the meantime… track down some soup for lunch today!

    Yes, I love reading Orangette. Her voice is like eating a buttery croissant. The green garlic soup sounds delicious as is your picture of the slices. The green garlic I’ve had slices into lacey coins and I’ve not been able to capture one in a picture. Those intricate little growing worlds and patterns are so intriging. And such a great excuse to play with my food.

    I love your green garlic picture. I am a writer for “Magnify You” magazine. ( Would it be alright with you if I were to use your picture for my article? Thank you, Amy


  1. […] We eat a lot of spinach. We heard once that the average American eats about 3lbs of spinach a year and I think we far exceed that in our diet. It’s just so good. You can eat it raw, cooked, braised, pureed into smoothies, wilted in salads, hidden in raviolis… the possibilities are endless. I bet you eat a lot of spinach too. Time to make Spinach & Green Garlic Soup! […]
